Just hard to avoid when turning on lines like these:


Really the Diablo Rosso are the worse tires I've ever experienced on painted lines, they're scary, a feeling I never felt with the Michelins (though you still obviously have to ride based on conditions).

I will agree about the Rosso 2's and painted lines. I felt my front tire slip a bit when passing through a set of twisties, it startled me a bit.

They do seem to go about 5k and they mostly work well. I have never gotten more than 5k from any tire I have owned.

I got 5000 km or 3000 miles out of the rear tire and was down to the wires in the middle. With the PR2s I would get about 8000km on my FZ8 and 12000km on my MT-01 (though at 12000km the middle was flat and handling starting to suffer quite a bit. Of all the tires I've tried the Michelins simply can't be beat. They stick like glue and last almost double of their competition. In the front they can easily last 18-20000km (11-12000miles)...

Front tire aspect ratio

Hi all,

I want to replace my tires with some Bridgestone Battlax BT-023 sport touring tires, but the only front size I see readily available is 120/70ZR17, and stock front for my 2007 695 is 120/60ZR17. Is this do-able? What differences would it make to have a (taller?) different aspect ratio front tire?

Thanks for any help.

Hey lets revive this discussion

my input
My monster 821 came with the diablo rosso II's they are ok but nothing spectacular, grip is mediocre to good when the road is dry and conditions warm. Cold & wet circumstances do not bring the best out of the tire
I had signs of wear very soon, the rear tire started becoming flatter in the middle close to the 5000 km and at 8000 km (5 k miles) I was already in the lookout for new tires finally replaced the rear tire at 10000km (6.2 k miles). The front was replaced (i think) at 12000 km (7.2 k miles).

Next was the Michelin pilot road 4 front and rear. Lasted much longer and provided better grip in the wet but did not disappoint on the dry warm conditions either. A good all rounder but produced more noise (as expected) and did not come at 60/180 but 55/180, this messed up with the DTC and mileage. Changed the rear one after 16000 km (10 k miles) while the front tire is still holding on ok after 19000 km (11.8 k miles)

Last update on the tire front replaced the rear tire to the Diablo Rosso III, after almost 5000 km (3 k miles) I am very impressed retains its shape well, very good grip in the dry - not lots of experience with this one on wet tarmac but lost the back a couple of times slightly in low speed turns around town in the wet, nothing dramatic though.

So far the diablo rosso III has performed the best at least for the rear and I am glad that the wear is even which allows for a good riding experience.
